Acer :: Bios Update Aspire 5310

Apr 18, 2010

I am looking for the following bios:

Acer Aspire 5310, Intel 27A0 rev 3, 2008-12-08, v1.50

Do you have any idea where to get this, who to ask? Acer does not list it, does not respond properly and I could not find anything in the forum here.

Acer :: Aspire 5310 Bios Dead

Nov 14, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5310 laptop which appears to have a dead bios and i'm hoping someone can help me bring it back to life.

Although I'm not a complete novice with computers i have always avoided messing with things like the bios etc... so i'm struggling a little on what some of you would consider basic steps.

The Laptop powers on, the fan spins for a few seconds and the hard disk light comes on..... I've followed several threads on different forums which have led me to believe that it is the bios.

If i remove the battery, press and hold the fn + Esc keys and then plug in the ac adapter, the power light flashes orange for a second. While continuing to hold fn + Esc, if i press the power button the fan spins constantly and slightly louder than before... but nothing else happens???

I've tried to follow steps to flash the bios using a usb stick and the bios versions 1.50 from the acer website but to no avail.

Acer :: Aspire 7720z - Bios Update

Apr 23, 2010

I have an Aspire 7720z. As Vista was having so many glitches, I set up a dual boot system with XP and Ubuntu 8.10 on two partitions on the same drive. Last week I upgraded Ubuntu to 9.10 but started having power problems. I read somewhere that a BIOS update would help so I flashed to v1.45. Everything is now going great with my Ubuntu OS. The problem lies in Windows. When I try to boot to XP the splash screen comes up for a couple of seconds and the the computer reboots. I used a test disk to check the drive and everything is fine. I then tried to repair the XP installation with the install disk but was told that it couldn't find an XP installation. So, for the umteenth time, I tried to re-install XP but was told that the installer couldn't locate any devices to install onto. Completely bewildering as my Ubuntu installation works perfectly.

Acer Aspire 5517 :: How To Know If Need To Update BIOS

Sep 3, 2014

My Acer Aspire 5517 Laptop is running Windows 7 X 64 with an AMD Athlon TF-20 Processor at 1.6Ghz with 2GB of physical memory. Every once in a while, and lately quit frequently, my screen goes black, and it will not boot...I have attached an exterior Monitor to it, with no success, so I assume it is not the video portion. To get it to boot I turn it off and on until it re-boots. Sometimes it reboots quickly and at other times it takes several minutes...up to 20 or 30 sometimes. I have run a disc check to see if all the  sectors are good on the hard drive. It checks out okay..I thought if the BIOS was out of date, I would update it, to  see if that work....

Acer :: Aspire 5100 Bios Update Failure

Sep 1, 2009

I have an Acer Aspire 5100
AMD Turion 64x2 Mobile Technology TL-56, 1.8 GHZ
Radeon Xpress 1100 hyperMemory
1 GB DDr2

It has vista home premium preinstalled. Lately I installed Xp on it (Ive done it many times before because its faster) The only thing is that with Xp it shutsdown after some time, 'cuase of the heat. So I thought I'll update the BIOS. It went well but then IT shutsdown! I was afraid of this but it happened. Now my Lap won't boot, nothing comes up, not even a sound! The only thing that work is the dvd driver. The fan goes like it would boot but nothing. I tried to flash it via usb but didn't read the usb.

Acer :: Aspire 5315 Failed BIOS Update

Nov 9, 2009

I attempted to update the BIOS in my Acer Aspire 5315 laptop to no avail, the winbios program froze straight away, while erasing the BIOS I think. So since then I havn't been able to start the laptop, no fans, but does blink a red LED beside the little light icon when left for longer than 10 seconds or so when you press the power button. I've tried the fn+esc method to boot it to flash the bios but nothing at all, tried it with USB and CD-ROM. I've tried removing all the hardware and starting it, I've also tried resetting the CMOS, still no luck.

I'm thinking that the red LED might be a little indicator of hope, or is it maybe the capacitor filling up

Acer Aspire V3-571G :: BIOS Update (Not For Upgrades)

Oct 9, 2014

I own an Aspire V3-571G Notebook with ArchLinux dual-booting Win8.1. When I'm starting Arch I get this (Ivybridge-/Sandybridge -related) error:

"[drm:cpt_serr_int_handler] *ERROR* PCH transcoder A FIFO underrun"

After research I think a BIOS Update should fix the problem. But in the BIOS-section there is a confusing line:
"BIOS - UEFI for Windows 8 (Not for Upgrades)"

So, does that mean:
a) not for those who had Win8/8.1 pre-installed (like me) or
b) not for those who have run an inplace upgrade of Win7 to Win8/8.1 instead of a clean install.

Acer Aspire E5-571 :: BIOS Update - Linux (Ubuntu)

Feb 4, 2015

I have an Aspire E5-571 without pre-installed OS. I don't care about Windows - I am using Linux (Ubuntu).

There are some problems reported by the Linux kernel at boot (UEFI mode) an I was hoping that a BIOS update may solve some of them (ACPI issues and unclaimed hardware). May be very well the Linux kernel but I can't exclude BIOS either.

On the Downloads page, under BIOS tab, there are four current BIOS versions with brief and strange description: versions 1.08, 1.09, 1.11 and 1.24

IF (and only if) I decide to update BIOS, which version should I use? What are the real differences between versions (Release Notes)? Except Windows 8 hacks, is there any real "improved system performance" on other OS? What is BIOS (5.2MB versions) vs. VBIOS (13MB update)?

5- I hear the floppy drive reading on 3minutes then after 3minutes the floopy drive stop and i release the holding FN + ESC button

Acer Aspire 5742z :: BIOS Update Black Screen

Feb 16, 2015

I've spent 3 days and countless hours trying to find the solution to a black screen after attempting to update my daughter's Acer Aspire 5742Z from the bios it had to the latest bios available on the site (1.30).  I ran the windows version from windows and I clicked thru the various dialogue windows appearing to be on its merry way.  At one point, the screen went black and after about a half hour it stayed that way so I unplugged it b/c it wasn't responding to the power button nor the ctrl-alt-delete. I've tried using a usb stick formatted to both fat and fat32 containing the dos version of the bios files and the full contents from a windows 98 startup floppy disk i dusted off from retirement.  I also tried a cdrw and cdr only containing the bios files.  In all attempts, the hdd led and either the optical drive or usb stick led blinked a little before dying out and nothing more.

May 12, 2010

I have an Acer 5310 that the hard drive blew up can any of you recommend a new one at a decent price and that will just slide straight in i also would like to run linux on it.

I did buy a:

Item: Western Digital WD3200BEVT 320GB 2.5" Hard Drive SATAII 5400rpm 8MB Cache - OEM Scorpio Blue

But it looks as thought it needs a power lead to connect to it as it has an extra connection by the sata11 connection.

Acer :: Update BIOS And Got BSOD

Sep 6, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 5315 and was running Bios v1.33. It has been running warm for sometime and thought an updated BIOS would help.

I tried the ACER site but didn't see any BIOS updates listed for XP. I have XP Pro on it now.

I followed a different link and found BIOS 1.45 so i Flashed it using WinFlash.

After it completed it shut down, i waited a couple of min. and powered back up, when i did i saw the BSOD for about 2 seconds and then goes to selective startup (Normal, Safe, Safe w/networking etc...)

I have not tried safe mode yet but in normal it just goes back to that screen again.

I saw the thread on using the FN+ESC mode but not sure if i really need to do that.

what I should do to restore it back to 1.33? I have to check my external HD but i think i still have that 1.33 version saved that i used when i did it the first time.

Acer :: Bios Update Failure 5633Wlmi

Nov 17, 2008

I upgraded to 4 gb and the Bios was only showing 3gb/Vista 4gb.

I updated the BIOS via bootable DOS Fdd after reading things here and knowning that it was not possible via x64 Vista.

Update finished and notebook shutdown, not restart.

Now it will not turn on.

No lights with power adapter or battery.

I have tried the "crisis" disk method. holding fn+esc.

Tried power in and holding Insert.

I've tried with and with out battery/power adapter.

Opened and bridged the clear-cmos for 30 seconds.

Reseated RAM and CPU.

Tried all of this with 1gb, 2gb 3gb and 4gb.

but alas she is still in a coma.......

I have tried Acer support for help but they want it sent to them, I want to avoid this if I can.

Can a failed BIOS really kill a notebook?
